RumbleOn reports Fiscal Q1 2021 results

RumbleOn has announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Within the financial details the company announced, “we expect our business combination with RideNow to close in late June or July of this year,” – Powersports Business reported the agreement between the two in March.

“During the past year we have continued to enhance our strategy and technology stack, paving the road for RumbleOn to participate in a tremendous share of powersport transactions, with improved unit economics. Our ‘buy direct from consumers’ strategy and our new B2B redistribution capabilities through DealerDirect means supply imbalances that would be headwinds for other business models, are tailwinds for RumbleOn,” said RumbleOn CEO Marshall Chesrown in the announcement. “With our pending business combination with RideNow, we are creating the only omnichannel solution in the powersports industry – offering an unparalleled customer experience for outdoor enthusiasts across the country. RideNow’s significant physical retail platform provides another piece of a ‘bricks and clicks’ strategy for RumbleOn, enabling us to reach consumers wherever and most important however they want to shop, whether online, offline, or both.”
